with their friends. when ann romney spoke at the republican convention, there were thousands of gop people just treating -- tweeting almost as she spoke a paragraph. you do not know how reliable that is. and i recommend that when people watch the debate, they watch it not just with those who think as they do. democrats should not just sit around in a room with democrats. they should watch it with their opponent. because what is most telling, to me, is not what the spin doctors say, but if you sit around with people from opposing parties, they will say -- did he just say that? and so it will not be your bias. because you are for obama or romney. so, i think it is really, you need to not just be on your own. >> i could not agree more. that is why we do these debate watches. there are the young republicans and young democrats. and they have a discussion afterwards. return of the spin doctors. i would be suspicious of what i saw on twitter. based on the reasons you say. the campaigns are hitt to that. >> i think -- the campaigns are hip to that. >> one thing i can say the tendency to do then is you
similarities between obama's health-care bill ann romney's health-care bill. can you give this a big similarity and a big difference? guest: the ann romney bill, mass. health reform -- the romney bill, mass. health insurance, and said we need to expand health insurance by making sure everybody has health insurance, and once that is in place, we will start looking at the cost of health care. the discussion came out because there is a theory that health- care costs are a two-headed beast. we have this enormously growing health-care industry, and costs are rising. people are living longer. the care that we get down is really expensive. mri machines, arthroscopes -- all of the other things that you expect when you go in with a headache, you want somebody to do a scan of your brain instead of just telling you to take two aspirin. so, there is a massive increase in health care cost that is eating up more and more of our government's budget. at the same time, there is a growing number of people that are uninsured. it could be one in the same. they could not afford the insurance because the health- car
. obama and ann romney. [applause] one of the great privileges of working for the commission on presidential debates is to work with jim lehrer. this is the 12th time he will moderate a debate. i'd like to introduce him now. [applause] >> let me be the very last to welcome you to this very important event. show of hands -- have many of you have been in this hall before? you know the rules. absolute silence. for those of you who watched on television, you know the rules are different for these events. in the early days when it restarted addressing the audience of a hall, i would say, ok, you make noise. hiss and boo and applaud and cheer. i will make you stand up and camille you in front of the whole world. i do not do that anymore. -- and humiliate you in front of the whole world. i do not do that anymore. you know the drill. you know how important this event is. it is important because it is about millions of people watching this event tonight. they are watching to make a decision on the most important decision the citizens of this country can make. it behooves all of you an
.s.a.. thank you. host: ann, democratic line. caller: hello. host: go ahead. caller: i would ask mitt romney why he says he is for the middle-class and when he was governor of massachusetts one of the first things he wanted to do was close down all the community colleges. that was what most of the middle class and lower class could afford. i do not think that he realizes what it means to be middle- class. he has no clue as to the finances of american people. he is so out of touch, i do not think he would do anything to help this country. host: let's take a look at the recent campaign ads that have come out. first, a new mitt romney advertisement. [video clip] >> you will pay higher taxes for government-run health care. their plan includes $1 trillion in taxes on the middle class. mitt romney and common sense conservatives will cut taxes on the middle-class. we cannot afford four more years. >> i am mitt romney and i approve this message. host: we will take a look at a moment -- take a look in a moment at the latest obama advertisement. this message -- host: now, the president obama advertise
. [indiscernible] i think ann romney was quoted the other day about the criticism that her husband is getting. i got a lot of the males -- emails on our blog varying from good for her to "doesn't she get it?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. i can't imagine watching my husband go through that. my husband being very protective of me when they are critical. >> my family loves reading by criticism. why do you get so upset about it? thinkingthat they are it. i will say that ann romney is feisty. i love what she did because it is so he a
